Brewed 12/29/07. OG = 1054, yeast = WLP028 Edinburgh Ale

Weather here has been wacky, and our furnace is acting up, but I've tried to keep room temp in my dining room, where it's fermenting, to about 67-69F. (The heater randomly shuts off and doesn't turn back on until someone lowers the thermostat under the current temp, lets it sit 10 sec, and raises it back to the desired temp) A couple mornings have dropped to 62F inside the house until someone "bumped" the heater.

Tuesday 1/8, was at 1.020, and now today it finally reads FG of 1.014 which is where I want it. But the krausen still hasn't dropped even after 14 days in primary.

It tastes delicious, FWIW. But I really need to rush this beer because I have to turn in my entries on 2/6/08, and want a solid 3 weeks in the bottle before it goes in.

Do I just rack from under the krausen? Also I want to wash and save this yeast cake, do I remove the krausen before going after the yeast? Or just mix it all together, let it settle 10 mins, then pull my sludge? OR, am I being terribly impatient and should I give it until next Wednesday to see if the krausen drops?
